Pita Pizzas

Today, I am going to introduce you to one of my favorite five minute meals, Pita Pizzas.  This recipe is amazingly simple, diverse, healthy, and delicious.

To start off, select a good pita pizza or English muffin. If you are gluten-free, select your favorite gluten-free pita / English muffin. I prefer Ezekiel 4:9 English Muffins – they are simply fabulous.  But sometimes, we just use simple pita bread from Costco.  I never buy breads with high fructose corn syrup, bleached flour, or anything “enriched.”  Enriched means that all of the valuable nutrients were removed and then were “added” back in as a service… but they are not easily absorbed nor integrated.

You will also need a good spaghetti sauce.  Check the ingredients.  High fructose corn syrup has found it’s way into almost every product.  My favorite spaghetti sauce is the Classico brand.  I love that it is low on sodium, no high fructose corn syrup,  MSG free, and affordable.

Then you are going to blend up some spinach love.  In a blender, combine a spinach leaves with water.  Start small on the water and work your way to the consistency you want.  When I first started adding spinach to our pizzas, I stared with a teaspoon of blended spinach and worked our way up to a couple tablespoons.

 

 

Spread a thin layer of spinach on each pizza.  Top with spaghetti sauce, cheese, and toppings of your choice.  We love tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchini, mushroom, artichokes, pineapple – go crazy.  Broil on high for 3-5 minutes.  Stay close, you do not want to burn these babies!

Slice, serve, and enjoy.
